Alright it seems that this whole obscure game polling shenanigan that I began can go forever so, I might as well make this my final post. If you want me to keep this schtick going then just PM me
. Otherwise, this is the final poll for which obscure game do you wish to play for the Sega MegaDrive. Also, a bonus round where I throw in an obscure game that you don't want to play at all on the Sega MegaDrive.This is how the poll is going to work. You have two votes this time around to cast on (re-votes are finally allowed unlike the last time). Pick one that you want to play and one that you don't.
Chakan: The Forever Man was an underrated platforming action game. You play as a cool dual sword wielding Skeleton warrior Chakan living an immortal life and doing everything he can to die by beating The Grim Reaper himself after evil has been eradicated. Yeah the game's plot is not original, but the gameplay is definitely something. The atmosphere reeks of mystery, horror, and fear. You can perform many cool tricks with your dual swords and slash monsters as you fight supernatural creatures. Game is ball-busting hard and I don't think I've beaten the game legit without using cheat codes. This is a great obscure gem. I don't think there is a re-release of this game at all. Only on the Sega MegaDrive and Game Gear will you ever play this game again.
Comix Zone is a great action game with some platforming here and there. This is truly an underrated gem on the Sega MegaDrive that at the very least got re-released so it might not get the most votes, but who cares it's still fun and just as hard as Chakan: The Forever Man. I couldn't even beat this game just as much as Chakan (made it to level 3 before I got killed). Kick@$$ 90's story, great beat 'em up, and just love the comic book style of this game.
For which of these games I would play, it's tough, but I would go for Chakan as that game deserves to be re-released on new platforms. Preferably an HD remake and game balancing, Sega could potentially make money off of this. Or not and just stick to Bayonetta and Sonic. Whatever works for you at this point Sega
. But please vote away which one do you want to play and explain why?
As for the other two obscure games, I'll say this. Yes I played both Barney's Hide and Seek and Crystal's Pony Tale when I was a wee boy
. If I wanted to choose my vote right now as to which game I don't want to play it would be Barney's Hide and seek
because at least in Crystal's Pony Tale you can lose in this game if you don't get enough horseshoes to complete the level. Plus, I like the wizard in this game as he's the only GOOD thing at all in this saccharine sugar-coated technicolor vomit. You just can't die... ever in Barney's Hide & Seek. What good is a game if you can't even lose?
I wouldn't mind playing Crystal's Pony Tale as this obscure gem shows Sega despite making games full of blood & gore can be a real softy with games like these
If you vote, I'll tell my little secret from the first poll.Edit: Thanks *Earl* for correcting the plot of Chakan: The Forever Man. I did play the game as a child along with Comix Zone and I didn't really get the jist of the plot so I corrected my mistake.
Also, could you guys let me know upfront as to which game you don't wanna play just so you be all clear since this poll has only 1 color option.
